The difference in price is only 50 with the current cashback. Absolute no brainer, 40d at 499 after cashback.

If it's in the UK, that's a fantastic price when you think what dslrs were going for not so long ago.

Look at it this way: if you get at least five years' use out of the 40D, that's just 30 extra you've paid per year. That's just a round of drinks down here in London. You've made the right choice!

I doubt he will keep it 5 years.At the moment technology changes so fast it would have to be upgraded in 2 years

Well I kept my 300D for 4 years, and think that 5 years will be possible for the 40D. and then you have the differences to think of, handling etc.

I am guessing his 10D is 4 to 5 years old, and why not? Lets face it many of us need no more that 10 or 12mp, and if we like the images today. A 10D can still produce good images today.

LOL. And I'm using a Nikon D1H... six years old and still shooting lovely 2.7MP images. Who needs 10MP+!

Depends on how big you want to print.

It depends on your individual needs and how mch use your camera gets. Mine rarely last more than 2 years. Just had a canon MKIIN develop the well known banding at high ISO's. The solution is a new imager unit at 950 plus a couple of hundred labour. It's 2 years old and has done over 600,000 frames so it has been written off and replaced by another MKIII.

Just bought a 40D. what a step up from the 30D.I must admit I didnt expect to find that much difference. Handling is better, viewfinder is better, eventhe shutter release seems quieterThe price its at the moment its a giveaway.
